Well this is all rather exciting…
I got my first official album release! The John Akii-Bua Story is available on Spotify, Amazon, iTunes and Last.fm.
V exciting for me anyways. 🙂
The John Akii-Bua Story: An African Tragedy is a feature-length documentary about the runner, John Akii-Bua. Hailing from a small, poverty-stricken village in Uganda, he became a champion at Munich’s Olympic Games in 1972. Breaking the world record in the 400 meter hurdles – dubbed the ‘mankiller’ event – and winning gold for his country, Akii Bua become an overnight hero in midst of Idi Amin’s dictatorship.
The music is nostalgic, moving, epic and dangerous at turns, describing memories of John from his family and colleagues and the journey that John took from his humble beginnings, to the excitement of the Olympic Games, then following his later years in exile from his home country.
Go listen and let me know what you think. 🙂
